We will start by having a look at the benefits journaling can provide. Here we will talk about how entrepreneurs, actors, and successful individuals use journaling as a way to develop themselves and their careers.
After this overview, we will take five minutes to uncover your journaling goal! We will through a first journaling exercise. Engaging in this exercise will help you get clarity regarding your goal - which is essential for motivation - and you will also learn a first, versatile journaling technique!
We'll move on to cover the five basic techniques. These techniques (or variations of them) are used in almost all pre-printed journals. They form the foundation of most journaling practices and are versatile in their use. If you know them, you will have the foundations to get any benefit you like! You never have to wonder what to do anymore.
Now that you know your goal and technique, we will discuss the right tools. Analog vs. digital, finding the right journal, and finding the right pens are topics that might be confusing when you start. Here, instead of telling you what "is the best," I will help you figure out what is best for you!
Knowing your tools, techniques, and goals, I will help you develop a journaling habit or reflex. Reflex journaling supports you to cope with life challenges. Habit journaling helps you with daily self-development and insight.
Finally, I will teach you what you can do when you lose steam or when you face writer's block. You can come back to this tutorial at any time!
By the end of the course, you will have completed your first journal entry, identified the techniques that benefit you, and designed a habit that fits your lifestyle!
